Tales From The Pantry: A Butler's Diary

From the pantry of an historic country house comes the ongoing diary of its butler, Mr Dean Fielding. I shall be giving you a glimpse of the family I serve and of the lives both 'Below Stairs' and 'Above'. I hope you follow my jottings daily.

Have been butler here for over 15 years. Having previously, and unusually for these days, worked my way up from footman to under-butler to my current post. You can now follow me on Twitter via: http://www.twitter.com/butlerfielding

A Sad State

Unfortunately my festive season did not go as planned. I had intended to spend it at Carstone, but my sister fell ill shortly before Christmas, and I spent it with her instead. She hasn't really got any better, and I am spending more time looking after her, than I am working at Carstone. Sir Geoffrey and Lady Carstone have been wonderfully considerate throughout the whole affair.

Hopefully I will be fully back at work shortly.

I recently discovered your blog (through the "Butler" entry on Wikipedia, by the way, which now has a link to here) and I've found it very enjoyable! I hope you'll be able to post more.
I'm sorry to hear about your sister, and I hope the fact that you're writing about it means that she's getting better!
